A single vote on October 15 will determine the fate of Market Street for the next generation and beyond. After a decade of advocacy, the project that’s ready to be approved will include a complete transformation of San Francisco’s most important street, including fully protected bike lanes as well as a clear message: get cars off of Market Street.
The stakes are high, and we need you on October 15.
Next month, the seven members of the SF Municipal Transportation Agency board will determine the fate of Better Market Street. If this project is approved, Market Street would prioritize people first, with fully protected bike lanes from the Embarcadero to Octavia and restrictions to get cars off Market from Embarcadero to Gough.
But approvals are only the first step, and we need change immediately. Real victory means getting cars off of Market this year and starting construction on protected bike lanes in 2020. Will you join the thousands of other members who are pushing to transform San Francisco’s main corridor?
A decade of organizing has culminated these past few weeks with the launch of Market Street 2020, our campaign to see cars off Market this year and ground broken on protected bike lanes in 2020. With our members leading the way, we’ve reviewed designs, brainstormed actions and are flyering on Market St. several times a week to help grow our movement and win on October 15.
Everything is riding on the SFMTA board’s vote. Years of work will either be approved or scrapped, and we need the collective voice of our members to make this win possible.
We’ll see you there.
